I wonder what it smells like, old women and bourbon?

*Disclaimer* No offense to any actual Mah Jongg players.

Maybe peanuts, hairspray and dietetic candy?...and we can't forget matzoh ball soup...oh, sorry, speaking from experience here.

Oh yes, the dietetic candy hit the nail right on the head.
I love this bottle. I inherited a couple of great mah jongg sets from my mom. The sight of this bottle makes me want to do the inevitable and become my mother /grandmother and learn to play.

Isn't there also a perfume called "Canasta?"

Cait - yes there was a fragrance named Canasta and it smelled a lot like kasha varnishkas.

That was priceless. It's a yiddish rap, almost.
